Let me introduce myself first!

Here, I will be telling you about the fee structures in different dental colleges in Bangalore.

Before reading this article, you can also read my in-depth article about MDS Admission in Bangalore.

You might know. Still, I want to tell you that you must qualify for the NEET-MDS entrance exam to take admission to any dental college in India. I used to get hundreds of calls asking for MDS admission without qualifying for NEET. In short, it is not possible legally.

Important: I would suggest you read this article thoroughly so that it could clear all your doubts about MDS course fees.

About MDS Course Fees in Bangalore [2024]

Before 2016, the college fixed the tuition fees and can charge any amount they like. But now, after NEET-MDS and centralized counseling were introduced, the state counseling authority fixed the fee structure. 

In Bangalore, the fee structure is fixed by the Karnataka Examination Authority or KEA.

The fee structure will be different for different colleges and departments. I noticed that last year the fixed fees were very low and before that, very high.

Approximate MDS Course Fees in Bangalore [2024]

I will list each department’s fee structure below, which will vary on demand. Many consultants say that they wait till the last moment, and they can provide it for a cheaper fee. But we can’t predict that!

So, the Fee structure for the MDS course in Dental Colleges in Karnataka can be broadly divided into two categories.

  1. P quota.
  2. Q quota / NRI quota.

The fee structure for all three Non-Clinical Branches in P quota ranges from Rs. 188000 to 621000 per annum.

The Fee Structure for all other branches was around Rs.681434 per annum.

The Fee structure in the Q/NRI quota ranged from Rs.988000 per annum to Rs.1515750 per annum for all the clinical branches in most colleges.

Whereas, some dental colleges like Mr. Ambedkar had kept fees till Rs.2088900 per annum for branches like Endodontics and Orthodontics.

Bangalore Institute of Dental Sciences was one of the premium dental colleges in Bangalore, which had kept its fee structure around Rs.1265000 per annum for all the major three clinical subjects like Endodontics / Orthodontics /Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

However, one more point to keep in mind is that in the year 2020 NEET-MDS, only 4 seats in normal P quota and 6 seats in higher fees structure were available for extended mop-up counseling and that too was taken up in the counseling.

Sometimes, the fees might come down if many seats are vacant, or if there is demand, the fees might go high. There is the approximate MDS management seat cost in Bangalore.

MDS Course Fees in Bangalore for 2024

The following are the MDS course fees for various specializations in Bangalore:

Endodontics9 lakhs to 1715750 lakhs per year
Orthodontics10 lakhs to 1715750 lakhs per year
Oral Surgery7 lakhs to 1715750 lakhs per year
Prosthodontics7 lakhs to 1240328 lakhs per year
Pedodontics421750 lakhs to 9 lakhs per year
Oral Medicine3 lakhs to 4 lakhs per year
Community161000 lakhs to 4 lakhs per year
Oral Pathology2lakhs to 4 lakhs per year


MDS Course Fees in Private College Bangalore

These are approximate fees that the college will charge for management seats. Apart from this, there will be extra fees for the hostel, food, material charges, etc.

If you cannot afford this much fee, then I have colleges that charge very low fees and have good patient exposure and excellent faculties. 😀

Hostel and Food Fees

You can expect a fee of around Rs.85,000 to Rs.150000 per year for a hostel and food. I have seen that most of the MDS students in Bangalore prefer to stay outside, and for a single room, it will cost you at least Rs.7000 per month for accommodation.

Material Fees

This is a kind of hidden fee that the college will charge. Before joining, you must enquire about the material charges without fail.

You can expect around Rs.80,000 as material fees, and I know colleges that charge around Rs.1.25 lakhs per year as material fees. If you have any contact, you can inquire or give me a call at any time.

MDS Admission at Lower Fees in Bangalore [2024]

Bangalore is one of the best destinations for dental education in India, and most colleges won’t reduce the fees as they are in high demand. They will only reduce the fees when the seats are vacant. But we can’t predict whether the seats will be vacant or not.

If you can afford the fees, I suggest you book the seat earlier and be tension-free. If you are not able to afford, you must wait till the last round of online counseling. If the seats are vacant, you might get seats at lower fees.

I would suggest you keep in mind other places than Bangalore in Karnataka or other states. Many excellent colleges in India provide the best education at the lowest fees.

I know colleges in other places where you can get MDS admission at a low package. You can check the fee structure of other colleges I provide below.

Expert Tips to Choose Good MDS Dental College

Before choosing any dental college, I would suggest you keep a few things in your mind. I have listed those below, and please stick to them. 😛

  • Dental college with excellent patient exposure in the department you want to join.
  • The college has excellent faculties, HODs, and guides in your department.
  • Affordable fees: Please inquire about the material charges and the approximate expenses for the thesis works in the department.
  • The location of the college should be good. This plays a vital role in transportation, communication, and social life of MDS students.
  • It is approved by DCI or the Dental Council of India.
  • It is affiliated with a good university.

Pro tip: You have to enquire about the department you want to join and not other departments. There are many colleges where one department will be good, and the other departments will not be up to the mark.

A big dental college with a fancy campus and name won’t give you clinical skills. What you need is the exact practical knowledge.

I had seen students only opting for dental colleges, which are NAAC-accredited and stuff. If you want to learn clinical work, you must inquire about patients and clinical practice.
